As most body heat escapes through the top of her head, it makes sense to put some insulation up there, a fully lined wooly hat is just the job. Because she has recently had a haircut, a free one I might add, her nephew who visited is a hairdresser, she needs to wrap a long wooly scarf several times around her neck to keep the cold out. This plum coloured one is perfect.
Now Ilona spends a lot of time at the computer, and so it is very important that she retains some feeling in her fingertips. This is where the fingerless gloves are ideal. No need to buy a special pair, just get any old cotton gloves and cut the finger ends off.
To combat the cold around her knees, Ilona has come up with the idea of wearing an extra large mans fleecy dressing gown, over the top of her clothes. This one was given to her three years ago by a friend who emigrated, he has no use for it in Malaysia ;O))
I am sure you will agree that Ilona has colour co-ordinated her practical snuggly warm outfit perfectly.....except for her feet. The furry pussy cat slippers are ginger as you can see, but beggars can't be choosers, they were a gift and you can't look a gift horse in the mouth.
This whole outfit comes in at just over £2. The hat was a freebie, the gloves are ancient, and the scarf was a cheapie from Matalan about four years ago. So you can see it needn't cost a fortune to stay warm this winter. What have you got in your wardrobe to keep you warm?
